Hello artinusa,

What location are you right clicking in?

Some locations will only have the New -> Folder option.

That's ok. What item's context menu did you want this on?

For now, here's a Folder Options shortcut to help.

No problem. You might see if using step 9 in the tutorial below can restore New -> Shortcut for you.

Great news.

It could be from a number of things. Possibly one of those all-in-one tweaking programs that may have a setting that removed it?
